Watched #2 Ianski last night on the TV (via youtube) was very good, a nice balance of banter, games, questions. I am assuming the break stop is a regular feature on the journey, I was talking about it at breakfast and my daughter started talking about the sausage roll man video (which was reference to the start of the Tony Temple one). What is that music from R-Type? is it the Super Nes version?
Keep it up, I'll watch the rest soon.

My daughter wanted to see what other foods you tried on route, so we ended up watching the start of the others (I promise I will watch the rest of them though!).   If I ever partake in one of these you know what the first question I'll be asking you as you walk through the door will be :) hehe.

Hi Ben and thanks for watching.
Well I can't say I hate any console as each has at least a handful of good games but it's just with the n64 I was living in sweden at the time and had no experience with it.
I left the snes went travelling and came back at got a ps1 .
I do own a n64 and I do enjoy doom 64 and robotron 64 and of course Zelda but other than that,there is not much replay value to many games and I have zero nostalgia.
Game room tour #5 is out Friday by the way.

Watched it last night and was great! Very tidy collection.
Working OpWolf too Definitely a Nintendo fan and games player with a passion for the SNES (just like a certain someone we know!). It's awesome just how different each one is; pretty unique.

More of the same please! I'm volunteering my space but surely there's some more guys on this forum who'd be up for it.

Great vids again, watched the latest Nintendo buys one yesterday and half of the new games room tour.  My daughter was pleased to see you had your "treat stop" on route again :)

Fab games room in the latest video, funny when watching these vids I think my goodness so many of us on the forum share such familiar themes and likes in our collections.  I'd be up for one of these tours one day, but only once I have my games room and loft sorted, I just have way too many collections. haha.

Welcome to come to mine mate. Ipswich based, however not really console or vid, more pinball, so maybe not your target audience. Just a couple of jamma cabs.

What a great range of cabs, us 40 somethings seldom collect the "new" stuff so something different there but mixed in with some real classics too... great to see passion for the old stuff in someone not born until after 1990 (do the math, amazingly this is actually a thing!).

Big Blue mint in box definitely the highlight though ;)

I won't mention any changes as they might be for a future revisited video ;)

Interesting video to watch.  I'm very much like you Phil.  My interest lies more in getting things to work rather than actually playing the games.

I also like they way you say arcade "rescue".  I never did like the word "raid".  It always makes me think of stealing loot, or a police raid or something like that.

I liked your room layout with the test area at the top of the room and the cabs at the bottom.  Seems to work really well

I agree with that,

Yeah anyone would think you just break into places like the ship and clear it out late at night, Rescue sounds much better and sensible

Obviously non of us just walk in old buildings and remove arcade machines at night without asking, oh hold on Embarrassed

now thats what you call a Raid, ok there was only 1 but it was still a Raid i'd say

Great video - inspiration for me to get my shed up to speed. A recording of my games room would be playing Outrun for a bit and then a long list of excuses why my 5 other cabinets are broken.

Interesting that Phil has looked to gunblade and muddymusic to help with restorations, 2 top blokes who have also helped me!

Now Phil what can you do to help me with my Snow Bros board and its damaged custom chip... :)

Was a great video, interesting collection and great set up Nes4life has, I so wish I had a door I could just walk through and have access to stuff.  Loved the naughty but nice section as usual, my daughter and wife watched that bit this evening with great amusement and laughter, I paused it just before you start talking about magazines, I have full runs of so many mags (CVG, Super Play, Total, Nintendo, Mean Machines, Retro Gamer...) they literally are everywhere, under the bed, in wardrobes, on shelves, under the stairs.  Just downloaded your recent Snes collecting vid and the Switch one to watch on the train tomorrow.

I think this was the best one yet. Fabulous collection you have there Chris - a real diverse range of quality interesting items.

Lovely house too mate. (I'm getting old aren't I?).

The no-noise Vectrex kit - does this exist? And where can I buy one? I've thought about doing the mod myself, but if there's an easier way, I'm all ears.

The guy who makes the debuzz and audio out mods has this facebook page:

http://www.facebook.com/groups/422677408074592/" rel="nofollow - https://www.facebook.com/groups/422677408074592/

And is selling the buzz kits on ebay now... audio taps, I think, still by direct contact.

You can get a cheap amp mod for a couple of quid but it's not as straightforward to install and isn't as effective as the Buzz Off.   Charles sends loads of instructions and has YouTube videos as well so even a novice like me can install easily.

The protector cases are from 3 or for sellers... there's been people doing them for more and more G&W types and also most other boxed console games over the years... the SuperColor ones are the only ones no one has done a protector for yet.

People like this:  http://www.retroprotection.com/Game-Watch_c197.htm" rel="nofollow - http://www.retroprotection.com/Game-Watch_c197.htm

But there's quite a few do them if you search around or on eBay.

Cool thanks, I won 25 Shark Protectors (SNES) in a competition, and they are rock solid, really good, but to buy them, they are pretty expensive.....particularly when I have about 300 snes games that need them...then all my Gameboy and N64 too.

I've got a beer out, cricket is on in the background muted and I'm just starting to watch #11. I have prepared myself for the eventual jealousy that will come over me by the end of the episode. Big smile

Just watched Alpha1's collection and what a great watch it was :) - Love the collection and really hope you get the games all together in a barn or something similar as you mentioned in your video.

Just finished watching it, glad to see the naughty but nice moment too :) 

Big thanks to Alpha1 for opening the doors on his collection, I am sure his dream of having it all out will one day be a reality.

Amazing episode, thanks to all for doing it. 
I worry about what my mrs is going to do with my collection if I randomly croak it.  Imagine the problem Mrs Alpha1 would have (god forbid)!

Glad you enjoyed it guys
I would have loved to have spent more time on the more interesting games but was wary of the time Unfortunately .hopefully go back for a revisit next year.
Thanks for watching

That was pretty epic. Big thanks to both of you for making it happen. Ol has to get these in a single barn sometime and fulfil his vision. Good job mate for saving them! Paying for those storage lockers can't be cheap I bet.

Didn't know there were 4 'I, Robot's in the UK let alone in the same collection! Also, you mentioned there was a DECO cab at your family home but we didn't get to see it.

An awesome video guys!

What an incredible collection!  I loved hearing the stories that went along with them too, of a time when you could pay £16 for a Galaxian (or get 4 original cabs for £75).  Also the guy that drove down from Scotland overnight to trade his mint Star Wars for a project Dragon's Lair.  Genuinely fascinating stuff!

Awesome! Thumbs Up

Alpha1's collection that was a nice surprise :)

Just watched it, thanks Olly for being a sport and showing off your collection.
Needless to say you have some awesome stuff and wish you the best of luck with your arcade project.

It must be frustrating for you guys with large collections that they aren't accessible to play.
There's a fine line between collecting and hoarding but after watching this I feel less jealous of Olly's collection, it's in good hands but yeah maybe you could let an I-Robot go ;)
(no I don't particularly want to buy one myself).

Having said that I'd like to throw out the challenge to you guys with the big collections - you know who you are - come on show off your stuff! Those of us that have been on Alex's videos have enjoyed it I'm sure so don't be shy :)

Nice one again Alex, not sure how you'll top this but keep up the good work!

I said it on Facebook, but I loved the Alpha-1 collection. Especially the focus on the more obscure Taito cabs... I always loved Taito games, and there are so many that I've never seen or played.

It would honestly stress me out to own that many cabs personally, so I'm glad others are preserving an awesome part of arcade history. 

Hopefully we'll see the arcade open at some point in the future. If I lived closer, it's the sort of thing I'd want to invest in!

We finally get a peep at the legendary Alpha 1 collection!

Incredible...

For me the highlight was seeing all of the Atari Cabs that use I-Robot construction style - Firefox, ROTJ, Major Havoc.

I would love to see these all lined up and working one day - hopefully your plan for an Arcade barn will come to fruition.

And nice to see the love for the really old games - I love that expression Alex used - The Bronze Age games.

Thanks both - fantastic episode!

I watched Olly's arcade collection last night (were gonna watch about 10mins of it and head off to bed as it was late but it was such a great interview Alex i jyst had to watch it all )

Olly's collection is what dreams are made from,such a fantastic selection of older gems all in one place....like Jim said all those Atari cabs lined up together looked awesome and 4 I Robots in one place...well i ain't seen an I Robot in years and to see 4 of the buggers was utopian . ...

Well done Alex on such a great video and massive thanx to Olly for letting us all into your hallowed ground of arcade goodness

Hi Alex and all,

I've not been on the forums much after building my own MAME cab last year (http://retromash.com/2016/06/01/building-a-home-arcade-machine-part-23-the-finished-cabinet/) but I'm getting back into it now and am hooked on the Ten Pence Arcade podcast and am looking forward to coming to the Arcade Club meetup/Sky Skipper reveal on Oct 14th.

But I've also been devouring Alex's game room tour videos lately. These really are so fascinating to watch. Great to see intimate conversations with fellow arcade lovers and also often extremely interesting stories about the individual cabs, the history of the machines etc. Fascinating stuff. I just watched Alpha1/Olly's one recently and it was mindblowing. Amazing to see someone with such a passion and desire to save rare machines like that. I really hope he gets to open up an arcade space one day to show the cabs off.

Thank you Alex for making these fantastic videos. It's great to be a part of such a passionate arcade forum. 

Cheers.

Mikey

Thanks Mikey
I guess I could have been into baking cakes but it's no where near as fun and interesting:)
I just love the Hobby and the guys I meet
They all have unique and fantastic collections in there own right.
Hopefully many more to come
